The food is of average quality and the place is rather touristy. It is not expensive, so I guess you get what you pay for. Generally, I have been quite disappointed with Sicilian food. Pasta is too spicy, pizza is horrible (not that we ate it at this restaurant) and meat is without any flavor. Fish is o.k. but given... More

As stated in the title, you get a good meal and it doesn't cost very much. There is a selection of antipasto, primo piatto (5 euro), secondo piatto (meat around 6 euro or fish around 7) and there is a small selection desserts. I have eaten here a lot, and every time I have been impressed. The service is generally... More

We stopped for a late lunch, so the place wasn't too busy. We had a starter, two pasta dishes (primi), and a 1/2 litre jug of wine. The food was tasty and hot when it got to the table. We only paid 20€ for our meal which was really good value for money. The service was basic, not bad note... More

We visited this place one evening, after having booked a table earlier. We were told to wait by the manager, and we did so for about 30 minutes until being seated. Once we were seated, we ordered marinara pasta. When it came, it was delicious. The dessert of 'cannoli' , a fried cone filled with sweet ricotta, was even better!... More

Excellent little restaurant, filled with locals. The food is fresh and homemade. Everything we had was great, plus the bill. Great value if your looking for a fresh authentic scillian cuisine, its a must!

I found this place about 6 years ago and for some time it was an excellent place. Always crowded and we had to wait a while for the food, but everything was always delicious. In the last two years, I tried to go there three times and all these times it was a huge disappointment. We booked the table once,... More

This place was hell! Worst dinner I've had since I'm in Sicily! The staff didn't know what you ordered, my second dish was put on te table before I finished my first and the quality of the wine was very poor! We were astonished to see that much locals entered the restaurant. We should have known better since the menu... More
